More Information About the Castle Rock ChiliFest
For the past six years, Boy Scout Troop 780 has organized the annual Castle Rock ChiliFest – which is an event designed to bring the community, friends and family together for fun, food, celebration and entertainment.
Troop 780 encourages as many members of the public to attend and participate in this event as possible. This Castle Rock troop is chartered by The Grange in the Meadows.
The money raised will allow the troop to participate in the Boy Scouts of America High Adventure, which offers adventure experiences such as canoeing and winter camping challenges, backpacking expeditions and adventure sports programs.
Don’t miss this fun and delicious annual event that supports a local Boy Scout Troop!
Early bird general admission tickets may be purchased online, and cost $8/each. Tickets purchased at the door are $10/each. Admission tickets include access to the event’s car show, live music, a silent auction, and tasting and voting on chili that has been entered in the chili cook-off contest.
